    I suspect that Clarke would have blocked his inclusion anyway but the stupid bugger made it easy.

    pretty comparable to a full home summer, just a bit more white ball than red.

    Yeah, no, maybe. Look I think he should have played more before now and he's been treated unfairly. He should be next in line but after homework gate I don't know where he stands with the selectors and coach anymore. So I guess I'm writing him off bcos I'm thinking the hierarchy are going to bench him like they have Cosgrove. Hope not so but is the feeling I'm getting.

    Oh dear. I can't believe none of Burns, Cutting, McDermott or even Hartley made any of the teams.

    Gotta love Ben Dorries taking a photo on his phone of James Hopes while they're checking their luggage in, then posting it as news.

    Pomersbach as the second highest scorer in the BBL should've been in the team
    Hartley was the best performed keeper in the Ryobi Cup, and was the 5th leading run scorer in the competition - however his strike rate was low at 65
    Joe Burns averaged 34 in the Shield and Queensland's highest wicket taker was Gannon with 28... for comparison, Sayers took 48 wickets to be top of the list

    Its not really that surprising, if you look at it Qld don't have too many dynamic players who could change the course of the game on their own, they have a bunch of hard working honest cricketers who punch above their weight and that's why despite having made it to all three finals this year, nobody apart from Harris and Pomersbach stands out from their side.

    Is Cossie a waddler anyway? His fc stats show him to be a good catcher. He's a handy medium pacer too and brings that to the side if you're looking for someone to bowl the overs that might be considered too much for Pattinson.

    Burns, Maddinson and now Silk should be left to perform in the shield. The only other candidates for an ashes tour are Bailey, Doolan, Ferguson and Rogers in addition to the 6 screwing up in India atm. Unless Ponting's form has the selectors trying to talk him back into availability. I was thinking that we might have to pick 2 of them for Usman and Hughes. Maybe if the latter can turn 50 into 100 in the 3rd test we'll only need 1 replacement
    Agree regarding Cossie, he has been one of the best performers in domestic cricket for almost half a decade now yet despite such drought of batting talent if they don't see him as a viable option then its just sad, sure he is fat but he is definitely cricket fit which is all that should matter at the end of the day.

    Probably doesn't help that the Bulls have rotated their bowlers around, mainly out of necessity through injury but also because they simply have around 6 pace bowlers they think are good enough in almost any combination.
